Chocolate chip pancakes

These chocolate chip pancakes are amazing any day of the week.. but are particularly fun to have on the weekends. I found this recipe online, and wanted to share it with you because it is absolutely delicious along with being (gluten free/vegan) I can’t wait to make them again!

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats*

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 ripe bananas

3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

However many chocolate chips you would like**

1. Add all your ingredients into a Vitamix and blend! If you don’t have a Vitamix or very high powered blender I would recommend mixing the almond milk and bananas in first and then add the oats and powders.

2. After you have your mixture, turn your pan on medium and make sure to grease it lightly with some oil. (I recommend coconut oil because it is extremely good for you and doesn’t go rancid at high temperatures. I have also used just a little bit of ghee and it works well. )

3. Finally place around 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan and repeat the pancake making process. But don’t forget to add chocolate chips on top 🙂

* I used Bobs Red Mill gluten free rolled oats

** This recipe actually tastes amazing without the chocolate chips too, so if you don’t have them on hand or rather have a plain pancake, go for it!

*** For extra thick and fluffy pancakes you can use some “gums.” Add 1/4 tsp of X-antham gum and 1/8 tsp guar gum to your mixture and blend well. The brand I use is Bobs Red Mill.

This recipe was mostly inspired by: Ambitious Kitchen

Enjoy!
